i'd say im a morning person i never have to drag out of bed no matter how much sleep i got the night before, im usually up out of bed immediately have the bed made start some morning chores, tend to the kids, shower etc with no problems. i recall has a teen getting out of bed before 10am was not acceptable and then add the hour on top of that to get motivated enough to actually get up. but once i became a mother i realized 2 things 1) if i can get up and get myself or some things situated for the day before the kids got up then so be it and 2) with kids you kind of just have to be up and awake and ready to get motivated no questions asked! so how about you are you a morning person can you get up and get your day started with no hassle and no grumpiness???

i am a morning person and dont mind getting up early. on the other hand, i have to be in bed by 11 or i start getting a really bad headache. so i suppose that it is give and take when it comes to morning/night person.

I would definitely consider waking up in mornings in good mood, as I don't want to end up ruining my whole day. My daily routines I consider are just easy, so no matter how I feel from yesterday's work, I'd always keep up with the days task. Work is normal, no matter how hard it is for us, since it is part of life and there's nothing we could do but accept it!;)

I should say i am not this morning person at all. All the mornings i really feel like having the blanket tight on me and sleeping. I really love to sleep during that part of the day. So i usually go to bed very late. I end up getting to bed only at 2 Am or so and hence i always try to enjoy the morning hours sleep.

I'm lucky to be cheerful in the morning and at night. But I am a morning person probably primarily. I like mornings very much, and I always feel I get more accomplished if I get up early. This morning I was walking my dog at 5:20am, and it was nice to walk around in the quiet.

I am definitely not a morning person. I sleep really late (in the wee hours of the morning) and I wake up really late as well. If I have to wake up early I really need a cup of coffee to help start my morning. If I have to work on something, I would rather stay up late and not sleep until I finish my work instead of sleeping early and waking up in the middle of the night. I really find it hard to wake up early.

Somewhat, but I'm more of a night person & that's why I work 3rd shift. My hubby & son are grumpy grouches in the morning!

Am an early riser and am happy for that thought i dont have children yet. But the bad thing with me is now being awake for long! I can stay awake maybe watching tv till late night, I start dozing at around 9.00pm and i will be awake at around 4.30 and 5.00. I wake up very energized and cheerful.

I admire most of the mothers for that because they really have to look after kids even if they're really tired. Well... I work at night but I usually get up at 8 in the morning and then I go back to bed at 1 pm. I cannot say that I'm a morning person because when I'm very tired I cannot easily wake up in the morning even if there's an alarm clock...

I always wake up early. The only problem is that I move pretty slow and it would take 2-3 hours for me to be prepared to go to work. I usually end up sleeping again or stuck with my computer or TV.

I think I'm not a morning person, although I can get up early in the morning but it seems hard and not a habit for me. But I think when I have my kid (will be born in December) I will be a morning person, and I will do it with truly from my heart :)

I used to a morning person for couples of year. I'm get up late while being stressed, I mean I can't sleep at night. I once recommended by doctor to consume medicine for better sleep, but that's not good enough because it made throat dries up inthe morning.

I am sooooo not a morning person. If I am awake at 8am, then I am actually alive at 10. Though the earlier I get up, the more responsive I seem to be.

I am not a morning person at all. I do fine once I get up, I just never want to get up early in the morning. Usually I get up with my husband in the morning (that ranges anywhere from 4 am to 6 am depending on whether or not he is working out that morning). I fix breakfast and pack his lunch, and get something out for dinner. Once he leaves, I usually go back to bed, though. lol I sleep until my son starts making noise and wants to get up. As soon as my son gets up, I'm up and busy doing things. It doesn't take me long at all to get going, I just don't want to. I'm not grumpy or anything, though.

i am not a morning person but i do not have a choice, my 9 year old wakes up really early and start singing in the shower which is quite close to my bedroom. i always manage to go back to bed and cat nap while my husband takes over, am definately not a morning person...

Heck, No !! LOL I"m a night person as night people come hehe I always was even as a child - when my mom really had to use all tricks up her sleeve to get me to bed and an appropriate hour for my age. Later, when in school I always felt more alert and could remember things better when it was night. I know people tend to talk about studying right in the morning with a "fresh" brain, but for me it doesn't work like that. Even now, it's at night that I feel the urge to do things like cleaning the house, doing laundry or vacuum the floor - which of course I won't do so not to wake up the people around me LOL But at the same time I can wake up early with no problem and be ready for whatever even if I didn't sleep much the night before. I don't have to like it, but I can do it :)

i'm a morning person in some aspects, but not it all. Most of the time I get up and get out of bed fine. I have no problem getting ready to go to work and all sorts of that stuff. But if someone wants to try to have a conversation with me before I'M ready for such conversations...I won't have it. I get to work a half hour before most of my other co-workers do. This is good for me...because it's a half hour I have to be awake and at work in the morning before I'm bothered. So I'm good with myself in the morning. I'm not good with others.
